Enviro Friendly Ant Deterent

An alternative to using chemical bug sprays and ant dust.

Those long marching columns of ants sometimes invade even the cleanest kitchens. Powdered cloves will keep the pests away, and cucumber peels will drive out the ants and make crickets skedaddle, too. For the especially stubborn ants, try a little parsley.

Moths around a porch light or window can be fun to watch, but often get so numerous that they become a nuisance. If the furry fliers overstay their welcome at your house, try hanging up a scent bag made from equal parts of ground cloves, nutmeg, and caraway seeds.
